The man who organised Prince Charles’s Coronation, and is the highest ranking lay member of Roman Catholic Church Britain, the Duke of Norfolk finally gave up on saving his marriage.
“I want it to be clear that our marriage has ended,” the Duke Edward Fitzalan Howard tells me about his 34-year-long union with Georgina.
It will be a disappointing news for Queen Elizabeth II, who is close to them. Since 1386 his family held the office of Earl Marshal organizing important State events.
Edward Fitzalan Howard tells me that he wants to let it be known that their marriage has ended after 34 years of being married to Georgina.
After a separation trial, the duchess and her husband split in 2016, their friends were delighted to reunite.
The Duke was close friends with Jeannie Lops, the ex-wife and former husband of Lord Roborough. To spare the Royals embarrassment, he and the Duchess have stayed out of the 2012 weddings of Prince William (and Kate Middleton).
But the five-child couple struggled to keep their marriage together and the Yoga-loving Duchess (59) moved into Peppering Farmhouse, a rundown 19th century manor in Burpham. The Grade-II property was meticulously restored by her. Peppering is now the home of the Duke, and Peppering has been vacated by his estranged spouse. He has taken up residence elsewhere on 24,000 acres.

“It’s very unusual,” a friend said to me. “Eddie attempted to convince Georgina that he would return to the castle. He said that he would live in the home where Georgina was currently living if she refused to return.
According to the Duke of 65 years old, he confirms that he is currently living at Peppering Farmhouse while his wife lives at Angmering Park, which is two miles from Peppering Farmhouse. He asserts, “This is all amicable. I have not expelled her.”
He refused to speculate on the possibility of them divorcing. He adds that “the future is still uncertain.”

Andrew Lloyd Webber is best known for his musical Cats. But he also adores Mojito his pet dog. He even brings Mojito along to Theatre Royal Drury Lane every afternoon.
However, the West End impresario’s love for black Havanese puppies has caused an uneasy relationship with his three-decade-old wife.
He tells me that horsewoman Madeleine, took the poor pet to the vets without his consent — to be castrated. He cries over Covent Garden lunch.

He lamented that he was a women’s man and could never fall in love.
“I have come to terms with that.”

Prince Andrew has finally found a job.
Prince Andrew may have just found the right job, as Air Miles Andy doesn’t do much these days.
To ensure smooth flights, the Royal Household needs an operations officer. Each helicopter that transports members of the Royal Family will be monitored by the successful applicant. The advert on the royal website stresses that the successful applicant for the £34,000-per-year job, based at Odiham in Hampshire, will also advise on ‘security roles’.
You can expect friendly advice from the Royal Family: They include four pilots who fly helicopters: Andrew is not the only one. Princes Harry and William are there as well.
Prince Andrew might be the right job, considering that Air Miles Andy is very busy these days.
